Chris Evans has had his work cut out for him over the last 15 years or so. His all American good looks, and general nice guy demeanour has landed him to plumb parts as two of the most well known Superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He first landed the role of Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four. Blessed with freak superpowers after an accident in space Johnny is able to become the Human Torch with the immortal words “Flame on!” Not only can he fire jets of pure flame he can also fly. The only downside he finds is that when he turns the flame off his clothes have burnt to crisp and he is left naked.
He didn’t have the issue when he took on the role of Captain America. Starting off as a weedy skinny no one (thanks to digital enhancements) he is turned into a muscle bound shield wielding power house by some experimental drugs. He becomes Captain America and forms a team to fight the Nazi’s and the Hydra to boot.
However it is his latest role that has seen him start an internet sensation. He wears a one of a nice set of Aran Sweaters that he may well have got from Shamrock Gift. This last role, in the whodunnit Knives Out, has elevated the heart throb to even greater levels. It’s amazing what a traditional bit of knitwear can do for you.
